Default BVWS Biggleswade Meet & AGM - March 12th 2023

We return to Biggleswade on March 12th. A fine new venue to replace the late Harpenden Halls.

Please note the different format for the March show, with no auction, but a huge BVWS table of stores items instead. Chairman Greg explains it all in the forthcoming Bulletin, but here is a precis:

Our popular on-line auctions will continue to run when we can fit them in between our regular events. Mike, our Auctions Agent is running another starting on 3rd February.

Mike needs time to prepare, including listing, photographing and uploading to the auction site and dealing with the payments and regional delivery arrangements after the items have been sold. Consequently, the March meeting at Biggleswade will not have an auction.

There will however be a large van load of items from the stores and they will be sold at very attractive prices from the BVWS tables in front of the stage there will be many bargains to be had, during the longer table sale period.

The AGM will run in a side room between 12pm -1pm.

There will be an auction at the Autumn Biggleswade Meet.

I hope to see lots of you at the Meet in March. More details will follow as the date approaches.

-Jeremy

Hi Jeremy

Will this sale be open to "all" and not just members, not the door but buying?

If so, and in light of other discussions about attracting new blood, perhaps it could be advertised "locally" (eg Biggleswade Chronicle https://www.biggleswadetoday.co.uk/ - they have a "things to do" page), I think they would highlight the event for free if fed the right information

Also within the school to attract some youngsters

As always, we welcome guests, usually invited by a member. All we ask is that guests consider becoming members if they visit events more than a few times. This is a BVWS-organised event, one of the benefits of membership, and so is not specifically set up to maximise profit, or public attendance. The items on the BVWS "stores" stall would otherwise be sold via private BVWS auction.

But we would love any potential BVWS members to come along, buy some nice bits, and see what we are all about!

The large BVWS RetrotechUK show on May 21st is a full public show, which is broadly advertised.

Stall bookings have started to come in nicely. If you fancy a stall, we will have quite a few more available than in September, so the more the merrier. At just 10 more than your normal entry fee, it's a great opportunity to get rid of surplus items. The stall order form was in the Winter Bulletin. Or contact me via email and I can send you a booking form electronically.
Non-auction events tend to wind up by about 2pm, which gives sellers a bit more time to sell, and lets buyers browse for longer. (Trader setup at 0900 and doors open at 0930).
And don't forget the BVWS AGM in the "Elgar Room" at 1200. A good opportunity to ask any questions of the Committee.
I hope to see lots of you there! Remember to put it in your diary.
-Jeremy
